Though 'Star Wars: Episode 7' may have sat out Comic-Con, now that it's a Disney product, it's possible we'll get the first big casting announcement this year at Disney's D23, which is coming in August.

'Only God Forgives' Review

'Only God Forgives' feels like a merciless practical joke played upon followers of Nicolas Winding Refn’s career, fans of Ryan Gosling, and perhaps most of all, moviegoers who flocked to their first collaboration, 'Drive.' It has the same glossy visual sheen as its predecessor and the same sort of impenetrable main character, but it’s almost nothing like that film, unless a throughline of deeply dysfunctional relationships counts. Rather, it’s much more similar — in style and technique, anyway — to Refn’s black-metal fever dream 'Valhalla Rising,' whose cryptic but bloody-as-hell exploration of spirituality repelled the filmmaker’s budding fan base after he wowed them with the Kubrick-esque festival-circuit favorite 'Bronson.'
But the differences are not simply a deliberate effort to antagonize audiences. Instead, they serve as evidence that Refn has the potential to be one of cinema’s next great voices, if only because challenging himself creatively is just as important to him as evoking a strong reaction -- be it good or bad.

What are the critics saying about Refn’s latest work? Some are warming up to it. Others are harshly dismissing it. Either way, it is the talk of the festival today.
